We wanted to take a moment out of our busy day (and think you should too!) to thank all of the teachers out there!
We’ve had the honor of working with hundreds of amazing teachers over the last few years and never cease to leave these engagements feeling inspired. You are the ones that educate, foster, enrich and inspire our youth and instill in them the confidence, discipline, and self-awareness that will serve them throughout the rest of their lives. You make a difference in the lives of the students you work with and pour your hearts into your work on a daily basis. We are still learning from the teachers around us and thank you all for the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people!
Our opinion is one thing but the most important impact a teacher can make is on his or her students. One of our summer campers said it best when he wrote, “You guys are awesome and amazing and are leaders, funny, exciting, cheerful, smart, kind and every word you can think of, you are it… When I grow up I want to be all of you guys combined. You guys together make something special – a sparkle in the sky, a star…you light up.”
As Dr. Rita Pierson states in her TED talk “Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” Thank you for being those champions and for making a difference in so many lives.
For Dr. Rita Pierson’s full TED talk (definitely worth spending 8 minutes of your time!) see the video below.
THANK YOU TEACHERS FOR ALL YOU DO!
